Thursday 22nd March is World Water Day, an event launched by the United Nations in 1993 to highlight the importance of water, the need to safeguard it and ensure its accessibility to all. Water is a precious resource, it is not only essential for human health and survival, but also of vital importance for creating jobs and supporting economic, social and human development. This report describes some of Eni’s best practices in the countries where it operates, with a particular focus on access to water projects for the local communities. And on those cases where access to water means social integration.
